whittled and whistled, but he did net t|
com down. She wax Ju.tt about to ti
lUrt up after him, when *he hettrd, i'
someone coming down. It was a man J
?the new tenant of one of the upper ii
apartments, and he was carrying Pif-,

seems to hare taken a fancy to me ." *
"1 Just got aim. Un'i he a dear?"
Nina said, with enthusiasm.
"He la a valuable specimen, too. Do
you take any interest In dogs?"

Invitation, and even after the "point h
era" had been given he didn't hurry j ,|
away until he had told her his name
I vraa Archie Kelland and had received j p
an Invitation to call again. T
He called often?at first to see how i j
Piffles waa getting on. hut after a few ! ?
calls he didn't need any such excuse.
Ou tha first spring day that arrived h
ha suggested a walk in the park to give 1 <>
tha dog exercise. It was a beautiful j
dcy. so they sat down on a bench to j si
talk ovar the weather and many oilier ti
beautiful things. 8a intent were they ;
upon one another, they did not not lee jthat

When they did discover it. Nina wa < tl
frantic. She knew that Piffles had. *
bsen stolen or run over. Home bir :
brute of a dog had killed him or he
vraa being tortured romewhere hv
some unfeeling foreigner. There;
wasn't n dreadful thing that could
have happened to that dog that she
dldr't think of. Archie finally got her
to listen to reason and persuaded her
that the do* bad can* home. but when I
